Welcome to another edition of our weekly newsletter, where we bring you the latest updates and insights from the world of cryptocurrencies.

As always, we have scoured the internet and our sources to provide you with a brief outlook for the upcoming week and a quick recap of the most noteworthy events from last week.

Outlook for This Week

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re all doing well! Not a whole lot happening this week in the crypto space, but we’ve got a few key events to keep an eye on. Let’s dive in!

💼 BOC RATE STATEMENT AND PRESS CONFERENCE – WEDNESDAY

On Wednesday, the Bank of Canada (BoC) will release its rate statement and hold a press conference. While this isn’t directly related to crypto, any significant moves here could impact market sentiment. Keep your ears open for any hints about future economic policy.

🚀 COINBASE SMART WALLET LAUNCH – WEDNESDAY

Big news for Coinbase! On June 5, they’re rolling out their new Coinbase Smart Wallet. This new feature promises a much better on-chain user experience. It’s expected to make transactions smoother and more intuitive. I’m pretty excited to see how this plays out and whether it brings more people into the crypto space.

🏦 ECB CONFERENCE – THURSDAY

Thursday brings the European Central Bank’s (ECB) conference, where they’ll discuss monetary policy and the main refinancing rate. Similar to the BoC event, this isn’t a crypto-specific event, but it can influence market trends. Any big announcements here could ripple through the markets, including crypto.

🕒 PATIENCE IS KEY

Given the slow news week, it’s a good time to take a step back and remember that crypto is all about the long game. We might not see much action this week, but the day will come when we see major moves. Hang tight, and keep an eye on the horizon!

And there you have it! Keep these events on your radar and let’s see how the week unfolds. As always, I’ll be keeping a close eye on all the developments and share my thoughts with you.

Upcoming Token Unlocks
